BLUF: which would you chose?
1. Heavy cream-colored card stock embossed with the company logo to send a handwritten thank you note to the hiring manager for the second-round interview (hoping to get the third round video conference interview over the next couple of weeks.)
[A concern of mine being his perception that "she's wasting company resources on something of a personal nature."]
2. Girly-ish blank note-card with a painting of violets on the front to send as a thank you note for that second round interview yesterday late afternoon/end of the day.
[My thought being "I have it here so it can be timely, it's neutral-ish, still expressive of my personality."]
3. Wait to send the thank you note until tomorrow when I will be sure to bring in a plain white with black text "THANK YOU" single panel note-card (not a fold-in-half, more like a calling card, with the note written on the back) in appreciation of the second interview, expressing interest in moving forward in the process.
[While I don't want to delay too long, I also don't want to misstep with the other two options.]
And yes, I know - I should just have a stockpile of the plain white cards/envelopes with me at all times. Sorry, M&M! LOL
